April Vokey

April Vokey lives in British Columbia, and was born with an unexplainable passion for fishing. April is an avid angler and steelhead, salmon and trout guide. As a young girl she coaxed her father into going fishing and by the age of sixteen, when she was old enough to drive, she was devoting all of her free time to her local rivers. She is passionate about Spey casting to wild steelhead, the environment and tying Salmon/Steelhead flies. She has made it her mission to encourage and introduce aspiring anglers to the sport, in hopes that it will bring them as much pleasure as it has brought her. She takes pride in being an eternal student of fly-fishing and an active conservationist.

April is a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor and fly-fishing columnist. She is the founder and director of the popular fundraiser, Flies for Fins, and in 2011 she proudly joined the Patagonia ambassador team, where she continues to assist in the design and direction of an upcoming women’s line of fishing apparel.
